S nastupayushem prazdnikom!
One quick question... the word: rasporyazhenye I translate as "disposal". Does it have any other meaning I don't know about?
Wikipedia translates this as: Delegated Legislation.
"Disposal" is a loaded term that implies taken out and killed, but I'm sure the Russian does not give this idea. Is it a more general word?

for my grandmother Janina (died in 1982). She picked up crutch and boldly went to break cordon of policemen. Your power of faith was incredible. It never detained. If I like it, shoted two times and I would have survived, my power of faith, too, would have been far greater. > > Are you surprised that in Lviv church was venereal clinic.

The rest had been put to other uses. I took a picture of St Anna's as a furniture shop and was particularly shocked at the time to find one being used as a clinic for venereal diseases... so shocked that I took a picture, but I was much younger then and more impressionable. Knowing what I know now, it does not surprise me. > > Regards, Mark > > > >
